100 YEARS AGO March 15, 1913 Way down in dear old Atlanta, “Gawgia” there is a “Suth’n girl from a Suth’n family,” one of the kind that can ride and shoot, cook, drive and entertain, and she wants a husband. She wants some lonesome man who knows how to appreciate the value of a “real Suth’n girl,” a man who will come home nights and be able to look her squarely in the eye and declare he loves her best, carry in the wood and kindling and do his share of other chores about the old homestead. This “daughter of the 60’s,” has written to Mayor James P. Faucette asking his aid in securing for her a “son of the South” to aid her in piloting her bark along life’s stream. She admits that others have declared she is pretty and offers to prove it by sending a photo on application.
